G'day Peoples!
How is everyone keeping?
Well I got some news for y'all.

Some of you will know me by the name of Brad.
Those same people will know I have a beautiful Pride and Joy in life.

My Bike. A Hyosung GT250R.
Anyways, It's all smashed up now. It can barely be sold as junk metal.
*Copy and paste from myspace*
Well I was cruising along a road when I hit the corner of a round-about. One and a half somersaults, and several meters later I find myself on the ground, rolling to avoid the 200kg bike close behind me.(not to mention the falling shards of debris). So I got up and casually staggered to the edge of the road. Witnesses say they have never seen anything like it. I'm lucky to be alive. (obviously they didn't know who I am...You cant keep THE BRAD down!) Anyway, twenty minutes later the ambulance arrived and took me to hospital. There, they put my in a neck-brace, cut off my clothes and spent a few hours doing some tests on my neck and back. They say It's a miracle I have no spinal injuries. (once again, they had no idea who I was!)
After 12 Xrays, 15 stitches, 2 operations (one being botched completely) and 4 days In hospital, I was told that I need to stay home for a minimum of 6 weeks. The following is a list of damage:
Clavical snapped clean in half.
(After the crash i was pulling on my arm, thinking It was dislocated)
Deep lacerations into the muscles at bottom-rear of my left leg.
Some Lacerations and minor fractures to my right knee-cap.
Several fractures to some ribs on the right.
One sever burn to each leg.
A sprained left ankle.
Several minor burns.
About a thousand scratches on the left leg.

All up I'm in pretty good health. Once I'm healed up, and saved up again, I'm gonna get another bike. Can't keep me down!
